The Youngest Candidate
Film Screening - Tue 16 Dec 2008 at 07:00PM
+ Director Q&A with Jason Pollock

The Youngest Candidate is a feature length documentary film directed by Jason Pollock. It is produced by David Letterman's company, Worldwide Pants, in partnership with Oscar winner Lawrence Bender (producer of 'Pulp Fiction' and 'An Inconvenient Truth', etc..) and Balance Vector Productions.

It follows the story of 4 teens that ran for public office in America. Funny, inspiring, poignant, and ultimately uplifting, 'The Youngest Candidate' is not just a film about running for office. It is the coming of age story of four idealistic young adults who dared to confront the corrupt political systems in America. Through their journey these young candidates learn about fair play, leadership development, racism in politics, the importance of family, and many other lessons that they will carry with them throughout their lives. In the face of great adversity, these four young adults braved all the odds to make it to Election Day to show that regardless of the outcome, it didn't matter... It's all about how you play the game. RSVP NOW!

Beautiful Losers
Film Screening - Wed 17 Dec 2008 at 07:00PM
+ Director Q&A with Aaron Rose

Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation.

In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.

Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth. RSVP NOW!
